MY FORD BANTAM DOES NOT HAVE SPARK AND TOO IF I TEST THE CURRENT ON THE COIL BOTH - AND + GLOW WHEN KEY IS SWITCHED ON
If this Bantam is the Petrol Engine Rocam Engine. If the engine is cranking and no spark at the spark plugs , its most likely the starter relay has a short circuit. Replace the starter relay
thank you ill check that; but it did just went dead while I was driving
Check also the fuses and the Main relay. This as you have described could be the main Main relay to the whole system. If you hit a pothole , check the Impact or Inertia switch which is located on the left side A Pillar under the dash. There is a hole in the side panel. This could have been activated and switched off the fuel pump. Press this button in.
from what I understand the + & - are both ends of the primary coil , the - goes to the module that turns on and off to generate the spark in the secondary coil that feeds the plugs , if you hook up and ground a plug to the top of the coil and ground the - real fast , turning it on and off you should get a spark , isolate the coil from the rest of the car , or with a multi tester you can test the ohms in the coils , they should be 10's of thousands of ohms , I wouldn't think a starter relay would have anything to do with the ignition coil but I could be wrong , your experience may differ, this info is for you to digest as auto electric can always send you a curve ball to the novice
